  3. I liked the book- wonder if the movie does justice to it. But then, Julia Roberts is one of my favourite actors!

  4. I've never seen this movie or read this book. I think it's just not my "cup of tea."

  5. This is my favorite E of the day. I enjoyed the movie, but I loved the book (sitting on my shelf waiting for a third read through). It was wonderful.

  6. Blah-- I didn't like this book and didn't like the movie even more. Too much self-indulgence and self-focus for my tastes. I ended up rolling my eyes at the MC in both the film and book. Such a cynic I am!

  8. Hmmm, I've missed this one. Will have to go hunt down the book. I like to read the book first and then see the movie. Seems I've missed both.

    Looks like you are off to a great A-Z start.

  10. There we parts of this movie that I liked and other parts that I didn't. It was almost like three separate movies

  11. This isn't the kind of movie I watch. I prefer sci-fi. But I'm a geek. :)

  13. I read the book and watched the film, though I liked the film better; Julia Roberts made the narrator seem more likable, but then again I love Julia Roberts. I also like the idea of traveling around the world, because I haven't traveled abroad in more than ten years.

  14. The weekend my life went to H*ll (my marriage ended and my Mom died), I started reading this book and it remains one of my favourites. When the movie came out, I was a bit tentative about it. But I really enjoyed having the visual to go with the story. Here is my 'review' or more accurately comment on it: http://acollectionofmindlint.blogspot.ca/2010/08/i-ate-i-prayed-i-loved.html

  15. I liked this movie! I didn't realize that it was based off of a book. Now I'm going to have to read it :)

  17. I have heard this movie is only so-so. I probably won't see it. But I do know a lot of people enjoyed it nonetheless!

  18. I loved this book, especially as I was reading it as I was planning a career break, so found it so inspiring. Ironically, I then watched the movie on the first flight of my career break...and I was disappointed with it. I found it such a letdown compared to the book, which is often the case I guess.

  19. I started to watch the movie, but didn't get far. Maybe I will now. Reviews are so divided, I'm curious to get my own impression of it.

    Nice to meet you through the A to Z!
